The programming language is a matter of tool that people use to get their job done. Perl is more than a simple tool
once that it has a very large community, support - runs basically everywhere and can be used to work
as a bash program or as a front end to a website.
Java is not so flexible. Have you ever tried to open a file and parse it using java?
I also have never seen a poem wrote in Java. I used to work with Java but I prefer Perl;
Perl can also be an OO language and is much faster depending on the job you are doing
Answering your questions: developers do basically the same work
no matter what language they use (but Perl is much more flexible).
And Java programmers are well paid? - Don't worry - Perl programmers are well paid as well ! :D
and finally: Perl is funnier ! :p
